Sidelites are narrow, vertical windows positioned on either side of an entry door. Though they are commonly paired, it is possible to have a sidelite on just the right-hand or left-hand side of a doorway. Sidelites are often combined with a transom (above-the-door) window. Available in a variety of glass styles and textures, sidelites can come with regular window glass or be customized with higher-privacy glass or decorative patterns. If you are looking to increase the natural light in your home and create an entrance system that stands out, sidelites are an excellent add-on for your entry door.
